The 2009 Tignanello is quite beautiful. Cedar graphite sweet herbs licorice and leather add complexity to a core of highly expressive red fruits. The 2009 impresses for its energy drive and focus. Today the 2009 comes across as slightly understated relative to many recent vintages especially 2007 and 2008. There is a silkiness and polish that is reminiscent of the 2004. Tignanello is 75% Sangiovese 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc from vineyards in San Casciano Val di Pesa one of the most evocative hillsides in all of Italy. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. 94 Points. Antonio Galloni Wine Advocate.
